There’s more news coming out about Keir’s new film VALLEY OF THE GODS. See below…..

Edited: Keir is starring in this film alongside Josh Hartnett. I don’t know if anyone has seen Josh in the Showtime psycho-sexual series Penny Dreadful, but he’s amazing as the American gunslinger Ethan Chandler. If you’d like more information on the show, please click on the button in the sidebar to go to my site for the show. It’s in the Family Sites section and the bottom rectangular button. Enjoy.

Valley of the Gods: Fantasy Film Casts Berenice Marlohe and Keir Dullea

Apparently in the works for years, the upcoming Valley of the Gods continues to add to its already-impressive cast in a low-key manner that belies its ambitious aspirations. Now, the project will add a stunning former Bond girl and a man who famously tangled with a rogue computer in the depths of space in one of science fiction’s most iconic films.

According to Variety, Berenice Marlohe and Keir Dullea will join the conceptual fantasy film as characters not yet known. The film will be filled with supernatural themes and Navajo mysticism set in the arid American Southwest, specifically the titular sprawling Utah desert valley. Valley of the Gods has already nabbed the likes of Josh Hartnett, Johnathan Rhys-Davies, Joseph Runningfox and the celebrated Charlotte Rampling.

Valley of the Gods will be directed by visionary Polish helmer Lech Majewski (The Mill and the Cross), depicting the story of a legendary but eccentric Navajo figure (played by Hartnett) who also happens to be the richest man on Earth. However, he also seems to possess the ability to alter reality; something that problematically complements his wildly vivid imagination. The film will reportedly split its narrative between three characters across America who will find themselves battling the supernatural phenomenon presumably caused by Hartnett’s character.

For Marlohe, Valley will be one of a handful of gestating major film roles after breaking out as the sultry Severine opposite Daniel Craig in the ultra-lucrative 2012 Bond outing Skyfall. While her docket has been relatively thin in the last three and a half years since that film hit, it’s ready to pick up, notably with a role in Terrence Malick’s upcoming musical drama Weightless, joining an embarrassment of riches cast made up of names like Christian Bale, Michael Fassbender, Natalie Portman, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mars, Benicio Del Toro and a lot more.

Keir Dullea, on the other hand, is a prolific actor who has remained on the periphery on the big and small screens after having made an indelible impression as the stranded protagonist David Bowman in Stanley Kubrick’s bellwether 1969 space science fiction epic 2001: A Space Odyssey. He was recently seen in 2006’s The Good Shepherd with the likes of Matt Damon and Angelina Jolie and the 2014 low-key 2001-inspired comedy Space Station 76 with Patrick Wilson and Liv Tyler.

Valley of the Gods has yet to pin down a release date. However, filming is reportedly set to commence this summer in Poland, Utah and Italy, which technically makes it 1/3 of a spaghetti western.

  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

I’ve finally gotten around to screencapping Keir’s role as Murray Stuart in the film INFINITELY, POLAR BEAR where Keir played the part of Mark Ruffalo’s father Murray Stuart. Keir was quite funny in this role and I loved his chemistry with the always wonderful Ruffalo.

Keir & Berenice Marlohe Join “Valley of the Gods”
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

Keir and Skyfall actress Berenice Marlohe have joined the film VALLEY OF THE GODS, according to Variety. No word as to Keir’s character, but as news becomes available I’ll post. Great news for Keir and us fans.

Berenice Marlohe, Keir Dullea Join ‘Valley of the Gods’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Berenice Marlohe (“Skyfall”) and Keir Dullea (“2001: A Space Odyssey”) have joined “Valley of the Gods” opposite Josh Hartnett, Charlotte Rampling and John Rhys-Davies, Variety has learned.

The high concept fantasy film, which will begin shooting in May in Poland, Italy and Utah, is directed by Lech Majewski (“The Mill and the Cross”).

Royal Road Entertainment’s Filip Jan Rymsza is producing along with Majewski, who is producing on behalf of Angelus Silesius. Peter Safran is executive producing on behalf of the Safran Company and Jan Harlan is co-producing alongside Royal Road’s Carla Rosen-Vacher.

Harlan was Stanley Kubrick’s executive producer on “The Shining,” “Full Metal Jacket” and “Eyes Wide Shut.”

Joseph Runningfox (“Geronimo”) and Steven Skyler have joined the “Valley of the Gods” cast as well.

The story features the richest man on earth, a Navajo legend and a writer (Hartnett) who possesses an unbridled imagination and has the ability to alter reality. It involves three narratives about characters who attempt to escape the drama that follows when supernatural visions clash with reality.

Variety reported that the project was in the works a year ago. Majewski’s 2011 film “The Mill and the Cross” starred Rutger Hauer, Michael York and Charlotte Rampling.

French actress Marlohe first came to international attention when she was cast in “Skyfall” following French TV roles including “R.I.S. Police Scientifique” and “Medical Emergency.” She recently wrapped Joe Miale’s sci‐fi thriller “Revolt” opposite Lee Pace and Terrence Malick’s “Weightless” alongside Christian Bale, Michael Fassbender, Natalie Portman, Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara.

Dullea is best known for portraying astronaut David Bowman in Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” and “2010: The Year We Made Contact.” He also starred in “Infinitely Polar Bear.”

Discussion With Keir & Gary From 2015 on “2001: A Space Odyssey”
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

I just found this on that bastion of video…. And may I say it’s one of the best discussions I’ve had the pleasure to listen to on 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. The video was from a discussion held in England back in April of this year where Keir, Gary (Frank Poole), scientist and astrophysicist Dr. Brian Cox, film historian Christopher Frayling and moderator Matthew Sweet talked about the film for the BFI (British Film Institute) film series. A fascinating talk where we get a more tunneled look into the film and Stanley Kubrick’s motivations, plus some interesting insights about Arthur C. Clarke’s view on the film. We are once again treated to Keir’s favourite parts of the film in the scientific gobbeldy gook, as Keir calls it, he had to memorize for the one scene that was cut. Then his story of coming back into the Discovery via the air lock and the circus roustabout who had the rope, plus his cute way of imitating Derek Cracknell’s version of the HAL-9000’s voice as being a pseudo Michael Caine. I loved what they all said about the longevity of the film. My only wish is they’d gotten a little bit into Keir’s reprisal of the part of Dave Bowman for the Peter Hyams film 2010: ODYSSEY TWO where the symbiosis of HAL and Dave was at the core of the film.

“2010: The Year We Make Contact” Named One of the Under Appreciated Films of 1984
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

The title says it all. Recently the website DenofGeek compiled their list of the most under appreciated films of 1984. Included in that list were films like Repo Man, One Upon A Time In America, A Breed Apart, Brother From Another Planet and one other film from that year. Apparently they named 2010: THE YEAR WE MAKE CONTACT or ODYSSEY TWO as I call it as part of that list. They cited the fast paced directing of Peter Hyams and Roy Scheider (Dr. Heywood Floyd) as two of the main reasons the film is on that list. They also mention that the return of Keir as Dave Bowman and Douglas Rain as the voice of the HAL-9000. Read what they had to say on it.


5. 2010: The Year We Make Contact

When this sci-fi sequel was announced, many wondered aloud: does 2001: A Space Odyssey really need a sequel? Director Peter Hyams doesn’t try to ape Stanley Kubrick’s style of filmmaking, and opts instead for a faster paced approach more akin to a Cold War thriller than a sci-fi meditation on life, the universe, and everything. Roy Scheider stars as Dr. Floyd, a scientist who investigates the discovery of life on Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons.

Hyams has a specific way of lighting and framing his movies that gives them an almost oppressive air of tension; where 2001’s spaceship interiors were bathed in light, 2010’s are dimly-lit and claustrophobic. It’s of a piece with Outland, Hyams’ underrated space western starring Sean Connery; cut off from society, blue skies and clean air, life in space is akin to a spell in prison.

The visual effects in 2010 were groundbreaking at the time, though less conspicuously so than those in 2001 – even then, audiences had become numbed to the sight of ships majestically orbiting planets – and they still hold up well today. With return appearances from Keir Dullea and Douglas Rain, the latter again providing the soothing voice of HAL, 2010’s far better than its tepid reception suggested.
